I just joined the Huntsman Heroes team for the Salt Lake City Marathon and I am asking for your help. Huntsman Heroes (HH) is a running and cycling team that raises much-needed funds for cancer research at Huntsman Cancer Institute.
2020 started off with us finding out my mom had pancreatic cancer. She spent many hours in hospitals, waiting for answers. We are so greatful to the Huntsman Cancer Institution for the care they provided for my mom.
On July 26, 2020 my mom lost her battle with cancer. She faught hard til the end. We miss her everyday. She was my biggest supporter and knows how much the Huntsman Cancer Institutioncan help people. I will continue to raise funds in her memory.
This was not the end we had hoped for. I always wanted her to live long enough to see what good the donations were doing. I will not let her down, I will keep fighting for all those that are fighting the battle she lost.
Huntsman Cancer Institute's mission is to understand cancer from its beginnings, to use that knowledge in the creation and improvement of cancer treatments, to relieve the suffering of cancer patients, and to provide education about cancer risk, prevention, and care.
Hope Through Research
HCI scientists focus on understanding cancer from its beginnings to create safer and more effective treatments. Researchers also investigate how genes function to discover possible methods of preventing, circumventing, or even reversing the genetic changes that cause cancer.
Hope Through Education
HCI offers free information about cancers, risk factors, screening, prevention, and treatments to patients, family members, physicians, and the public.
Hope Through Care
At HCI, teams of doctors and health care professionals work together to provide compassionate, state-of-the-art care.
